The purpose of this form is to report the issues you see every day at the Department of Corrections that you think are being done less effectively or not safely. Our union will gather this information as a way to push for reforms and push back against cuts. If you see something, say something. This form is an avenue for that.
I was twenty five, a young and rambunctious unionist - I didn’t think of myself as a trouble maker, more a rabble-rouser. It was my first AFSCME convention - honestly, I didn’t know what I was getting into. - By Zackariah Sloane
The 80th legislative session kicks off today and provides us both opportunities and challenges. We have the chance to pass significant legislation to improve our working conditions. However, we also have to be vigilant and fight proposed changes to Oregon law that may hurt us or make our jobs more challenging.
Oregon AFSCME is excited to announce a new way AFSCME represented members and leaders can connect with and engage in our Union. As more and more members get active in their local union, we want to add a new and efficient way for members to easily get questions answered and concerns responded to; while also providing additional support to member leaders.
